[IP] Glucophage

Has anyone with type 1 used glucophage?  Does it come in a time released
pill?  Lauren uses it to suppress rebounds with which she has a real
prob...she has a overreactive liver.  Without glucophage, she rebounds
before she hits 90.  So she is low and rebounds to 330 before we even
realize that she is low.  

Glucophage is great but it only lasts for 6 hours and wears off.  Then
Lauren's liver starts dumping glucose.  She goes from 80 to 240 in 1.5
hours at a time when her basal is appropriate and she hasn't eaten.  

does anyone else have any experience with it?
